A Love Letter to New York

19/03/2012 § 3 Comments

Designer Tory Burch talks about her life in the Big Apple, taking the viewer to some of her favorite places (one of my own favorites, the Frick, gets a mention!) and describes what it was like to move to New York from Pennsylvania over some rather beautiful shots of the city I have come to call my home as well.

It got me thinking of what my own love letter to New York might look like, and what places I would share, that make me feel most like a New Yorker and how “my New York” has changed since moving here from Los Angeles almost five years ago.  We’d definitely spend some time in Grand Central Terminal, and stroll the quiet evening streets of Tribeca.  Perhaps a bike ride up the west side at sunset or maybe a subway ride to Brooklyn for cozy cocktails with friends.  It would have to include the noise of steam heat, doormen that know just a little too much, never being able to get a cab when you need one and bacon, egg and cheese on a roll, delivered to your front door.  Oh, and losing your metrocard, buying a new one, and then finding the first one almost immediately.  Definitely that one.

What does your love letter to New York look like?
Or better yet, what does your love letter to your home city look like?
Perhaps like Woody Allen’s to Paris? Or Steve Martin’s to Los Angeles?
